The Lord is my rock

And the king commanded them to quarry large stones, costly stones, and hewn stones, to lay the foundation of the temple. 1 Kings 5:18

     Anyone who has constructed a building knows how crucial the foundation is. If the base of the building is not straight and solid, the entire structure is in jeopardy. It matters not what elaborate furnishings and decorative work is done on the top floors of a structure if the foundation is flawed.

     When Solomon sought to build the most magnificent building in the nation, he spared no expense. He ordered large, expensive, hewn stones to be extracted and brought to provide the base of the temple. This required a massive labor force and enormous expense. Yet Solomon was not building a temporary shelter but an edifice for the ages. When you want something to last, you give special care to its foundation.

     Humanity often finds itself frantically scurrying about trying to take care of its immediate needs. To address transitory concerns, an ordinary foundation may appear to be sufficient. But if you want to invest yourself in something that lasts, you must take time to properly lay a solid foundation. How much of what you are currently investing yourself in will not even outlast you? What have you been investing in that is so solid it will continue on long after you are gone?

Wherever WE have a platform... At home, at work, at church, school or even in our community... It is our responsibility to discern if we are building on sinking sand or on Christ the solid rock - to ensure what we are building - is on an eternal foundation!

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”  ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:14-16‬ ‭
